Last week I had my briefcase stolen from the back of my car outside a restaurant. There was no sign of forced entry and I was fairly sure I had locked it.

Last night I definitely locked it and this morning it was open again.

Has anybody experience their car unlocking itself unaided. Failing that, either I am going senile at 47 or, the car is haunted :eek:

Could your remote have been cloned somehow?

Accidently pressed it in your pocket?
Even if you do press the button accidently the car re-locks itself after 30 seconds if a door or boot isn't opened. This is quite a narrow window of opportunity unless someone is already waiting for it to happen!

Cloning is unlikely because the two incidents occured 30 miles apart. The keys were not in my pocket but sat on the restaurant and kitchen tables. No-one tampered with them. Very strange.

I will be double checking every time I leave or return to the car from now on just to make sure I'm not going do-lally :eek:

That feature does not always work BTW.
